Protect yourself and others this holiday season with a free flu shot

Check out the December schedule for Gloucester County

The Gloucester County Department of Health is offering free flu clinics through the end of the year for all Gloucester County residents.

“Receiving a flu shot is the best way to keep you and others safe from contracting the flu,” Director Robert M. Damminger said. “Getting together to celebrate the holidays is an important part of the holidays, you don’t want to get the flu to keep you from family and friends over the holiday!”

“Gloucester County proudly offers flu shots at no cost to our residents” Commissioner Jim Jefferson, Liaison to the Department of Health, said. “If you need the flu shot, please just come to one of our conveniently scheduled clinics through November.”

If you are attending a flu clinic, please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
